Mommy's Birthday

I can't believe I am already 32. I am so blessed. My kids were really into the gift giving thing this year so that was really fun to see what they came up with and the things that were important to each one of them. Greg took me out for the day. Thanks mom and dad for watching the kids. We had a fantastic lunch at Black Angus (best burger I've had in a long time and cooked all the way through!!) and then went to see Prince Caspian. We loved the movie. It was better than the first one. Definitely a buy it movie. Then it was off for a little shopping. I got Stormie Omartian's new book, "The Power of Praying through the Bible". I am so excited to dive in and learn even more about prayer in very specific areas. And of course, since there are three more birthdays in our home in the next 3 weeks we did some shopping for those too.

So, it's been another whirlwind of a year but another one truely blessed by God. I can see His hand throughout it all. Sometimes protecting, sometimes guiding, sometimes allowing me to fall and learn, and sometimes gently carrying me along. In all things I give Him the glory and hope that this year is full of new truths learned, old truths kept, and the ability to praise Him through it all.
